The Shield Offline proc from the Charged Burst Assault's secondary fire no longer lasts far longer than intended.

Honestly I'm happy with it in general. Makes it much easier to combine Sci with beams.
That said I'm not so sure the details are all that, ahem, perfect but oh well.
O and the plasma burn nerf flat out makes me want to flip tables.
STO has a diverse group of players with a wide range of expectations and playstyles. To that end the STO team should endeavor to create a variety of content with a diverse set of difficulty levels and challenges. Cake for everyone!
It was really hard getting enemies into the 90' arc with Sci ships before, maybe now we can actually use SNB/VM/Tyken's/GM/etc without having to sacrifice a crapton of DPS due to the loss of broadsiding.
Also, I have absolutely no idea that the Subspace Jump console exists, nor the fact that it is incredibly cheap and it's timer lines up perfect with SNB.
The first we heard of getting new PvP maps "soon" was in August of 2010. We're consistently told something will be coming with the "next" update. Absolutely nothing has come to PvP since launch.
I think it's finally time Cryptic stopped stringing us along, don't you?
so let me get this strait, my excellent build that uses plasma weapons, EWP3 and plasma torpedoes, all getting their plasma damage and plasma dot buffed thanks to the plasma energy consoles, is now getting all that synergy destroyed? because of the wimpiest damage skill in the game, plasma shockwave? because you thought it should not be buffed like every other plasma damage dealing thing in the game?
oh boy, i sure am liking this singularity crap now. guess i'll throw all those plasma weapons in the trash, theres no reason to self nerf by using them now. all them STF set shields make them worthless, but at least they helped out the DOTs i also ran. that plasma build, definitely not running it on any romulan ships now, i'll be switching to disrupters then.
what synergy are you going to destroy next? tac buffs buffing exotic damage too? there'd be exactly zero reason for a tac to use a sci ship then, or to use the breen ship, MVAM, ambassador, kamarang, and anything else with mid to high level sci skills. but by all means, go ahead and ruin more synergy, make the only thing that works in this game be escorts and DHCs. i guess the EPt skills being the worst skill change ever perpetrated on us just isn't enough is it?
